Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch, Southern Kalahari, Namibia
Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch lies on the edge of the Southern Kalahari in the mixed tree and shrub Savanna. This tranquil lodge is based on a ranch characterised by huge red sands dunes running in parallel lines in a northern-westerly to south-easterly direction.
Located within a few hours drive from Windhoek it makes for an ideal stop-over en route to the Naukluft Park or south to the Fish River area. The accommodation is in ten rooms, four of which are "dune chalets" balanced on top of a Kalahari sand ridge. Six rooms are "strohballe" and are built in the valleys between the dunes and a further four are "garden court" rooms built next to the main lodge.
The lodge's main area is decorated in rich warm and earthy tones and has a well stocked curio shop, comfortable reading lounge and library. There is also a swimming pool with loungers and hammock, a good place to relax in the hot afternoons and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
Nature drives during the early morning and late afternoon will enable you to view desert-adapted animal and bird life and the unique dune topography and vegetation. In the evenings traditional sundowners on a red Kalahari sand dune are the perfect way to watch the sun sink away into the distant dunes.
